Dental implants are utilised when tooth loss has resulted in gaps appearing between teeth and can be looked at as being replacement roots upon which, cosmetic teeth can be attatched. They are also important in that they underpin and support teeth either side of the gap.
The main types of dental implant are endosteal where the implant (looks like a small screw) is screwed into the jaw bone and the other is subperiosteal where the implants are on a framework that is fitted onto the jawbone below the gums.
Subperiosteal are placed upon the jaw under the gums whereas Endosteal implants are screwed directly into the jaw – it would be dependent upon the density of bone of your jaw.
Whilst side effects are {extremely|very rare, they can include damage to the jaw, nerves and bordering teeth.
Yes, it is possible however please note that it takes around four months for the gums to fully repair themselves which involves shrinkage and thus the implants have to be adjusted.
Yes of course and just as with real teeth they have to be properly cleaned or else it can lead to plaque and infection and also gum disease.
It is not any sorer than having a tooth removed which clearly depends upon your pain threshold and the type/amount of anesthetic used.
Normally not because it requires a specialist to be in attendance but it may be a chargeable option offered by the dental practice.
If you are replacing a single tooth then the gap can be bridged by crowning the teeth either side of the missing tooth.
This is where every one of the teeth top and or bottom are replaced by a complete arch bridge held in place by 4 implants (sometimes 6).
